Award-winning, bestselling author and illustrator Emily Gravett delivers a hilarious tale of mishap and mayhem as ten dogs pursue a chain of sausage links in this early-learning picture book, perfect for anyone looking for books for 3-year-olds and up.  
From dachshund to dalmation, every dog wants a piece of the prize. Follow this high-stakes adventure as the scales tip from one dog with all the sausages and nine dogs with none to nine dogs with all the sausages and one dog with none. Will ten hungry dogs ever find a way to share ten tasty treats?  
Gravett’s playful art and clever plot twists create page-turning suspense, making this dog book perfect for repeat read-aloud fun.

This charming counting book is perfect for helping young readers learn about sharing as well as how to count to ten. Emily Gravett’s adorable dog art makes 10 Dogs just as appealing to those looking for funny dog books as it is for anyone searching for kids books for ages 3—5.

“Gravett’s follow-up to 10 Cats (2023) is just as raucous and enjoyable . . . . All will laugh at the antics, and youngsters owned by doggies will easily pick out their canine companions in the crowd…they might even learn some simple math. Fun from the first page to the last.” - Kirkus 

“Readers can expect much more than just a counting book in Gravett’s latest: it’s also a delightful mathematical puzzler for preschoolers . . . . Expect big laughs form preschoolers, particular those who are dog fans.”- Horn Book

“Counting, addition, subtraction and even fractions can be taught (sort of) with this adorable picture book about 10 silly dogs and how they share (or not) 10 tasty sausages.” - Greenville News
